YUV or RGB

Hi,

I use FCP and Matrox mini and will be showing a film soon using an HD projector (Optoma EH1020). At the moment I monitor using an LCD calibrated screen (RGB). The footage is all HDV (though it's all converted to Prores in FCP) so is in YUV colour space . The projector has YUV and RGB output settings. I've played around with the projector settings and got a reasonably good image but am not entirely happy with the colour / brightness.

So the simple question is would it be better to start by outputting as YUV or RGB (this can be altered in the Matrox software)? I'm thinking that as the original footage is YUV and as the screen everything else is going to be different to my home monitoring then YUV would be best. Does that make sense? Any tips for calibrating an HD projector?
